In this article will learn how can we change the cursor to a custom image cursor when it hovers over the toolbar. To do this we need to follow some steps as follows.

Step 1: Create wx.Image object of the image you like.
Step 2: Create wx.Cursor object passing image as parameter.
Step 3: Set cursor for toolbar using SetCursor() method.

wx.ToolBar.SetCursor(self, cursor)


ParameterInput TypeDescription
sizewx.SizeSize for radio button

Return Type: bool

Code Example:

import wx
class Example(wx.Frame):
    global count
    count = 0;
    def __init__(self, *args, **kwargs):
        super(Example, self).__init__(*args, **kwargs)
    def InitUI(self):
        self.locale = wx.Locale(wx.LANGUAGE_ENGLISH)
        pnl = wx.Panel(self)
        self.toolbar = self.CreateToolBar()
        # Add tools to toolbar
        ptool = self.toolbar.AddTool(12, 'oneTool',
                                     wx.Bitmap('wrong.png'), shortHelp ="Simple Tool")
        qtool = self.toolbar.AddTool(12, 'oneTool', wx.Bitmap('wrong.png'),
                                     wx.Bitmap('wrong.png'), shortHelp ="Simple Tool")
        # create wx.Image object
        img = wx.Image('click.png')
        # create wx.Cursor object
        crsr = wx.Cursor(img)
        # set crsr cursor for the toolbar
        self.SetSize((350, 250))
def main():
    app = wx.App()
    ex = Example(None)
if __name__ == '__main__':
